This thread is based mostly on the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act which is given to state and local governments in the United States. It is a
39-page guide created by the CDC and the Center for Law and the Public's Health at Georgetown and Johns Hopkins Universities.
The guide delves deeply into precise guidelines and laws for tracking individuals, quarantine, human remains disposal, legal confiscation of
It's an interesting guide to read but I'm writing this thread for one specific reason: I want to be educated on what can legally happen during a
Class 6 Pandemic, as we are in now, so I can attempt to negotiate the best I can.
On to the good stuff!
I might just print this on a card and leave it in my wallet
Article 6, section 604 Isolation and quarantine.
(b) Conditions and principles. The Public Health Authority shall adhere to the following conditions and principles when isolating or quarantining
individuals or groups of individuals:
(1) Isolation and quarantine must be by the least restrictive means necessary to prevent the spread of a contagious or possibly contagious
disease to others and may include, but are not limited to, confinement to private homes or other private and public premesis.
Laws don't seem to mean a whole lot these days but having something in writing might just allow you to talk to that next guy up the chain of command.
If I can be quarantined in my house instead of who knows where, all the better.
